KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Longtime Tennessee verbal commitment Dominique Booth, a receiver from Indianapolis, is looking elsewhere.

News Sentinel partner 247Sports reported Sunday night that Booth would be unable to enroll in Tennessee in January.

The Vols have put a priority on getting players in early. Booth said UT coach Butch Jones said there’s a chance he could still sign in February and enroll in the summer, but that seems unlikely. By cutting ties now, Booth has an opportunity to find another opportunity. He mentioned Indiana, Missouri and Texas A&M as possibilities.

As of Saturday, Booth was still tweeting as if he planned to be a member of the Vols’ class. His Twitter background is still decked out in Tennessee logos.

The Vols now have 32 commitments in their 2014 class. Jones said he hoped to enroll 14 mid-year players in January.

Booth is a four-star receiver in the 247 Composite.

It’s fair to say #FoundationWeek, #FoundationDay and any other brick-related metaphors worked out OK. The Vols are now a consensus No. 1 in the team recruiting rankings (according to the 247Sports Composite).

With the six new additions, the Vols have an incredible 24 players who have verbally committed to sing in the Class of 2014, with still seven months to go until National Signing Day.

We think that the Vols can sign 29 or 30 players in this class. So that leaves precious little space to fill.

With that in mind, a few questions and answers….
